Markets Slip on Oily News but Barton Biggs Bounces Them
Linda Piazza

Despite the conjectures of one television commentator, Barton
Biggs' assertion that the markets were primed for a big bounce,
only moments before that late-day bounce occurred, did not prompt
the gains.  Here's what more reasoned thinkers believe happened.

Annotated Daily Chart of the SPX:



After a day in which the SPX had at one point lost more than 19
points; the Dow, more than 167; the Nasdaq, more than 52; and the
Russell 2000, more than 14, the bounce proved impressive,
whatever produced it.

The early losses proved just as impressive.  U.S. investors woke
to the news that June crude oil had traded above the benchmark
$40.00 level on the New York Mercantile Exchange, to its highest
level since 1988.  Although Asian markets had moved higher in the
overnight session, with the Nikkei gaining an impressive 2.26
percent after bouncing from its own 200-dma, European markets had
headed down.

To make matters worse, the International Energy Agency, the IEA,
released a report estimating that global use of fuels would rise
more than expected, at the same time saying that inventories of
crude and fuels held by the thirty member nations of the
Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the OECD,
fell in the first quarter.  The IEA also trimmed its estimate of
oil supply from countries outside OPEC.  Saudi Arabia has been
urging OPEC members to increase production, with OPEX ministers
to meet informally beginning March 22.  Some question whether
production can keep up with surging demand, however.  China's
growth has bumped it up to the number two oil consumer, ahead of
Japan, with the IEA concluding that China's recent measures to
cool its economy would not significantly cut its oil consumption.

Although some deemed the number less inflationary than expected,
the U.S. doesn't look ready to cut consumption, either.  The 8:30
EST release of the U.S. trade deficit revealed a 9.1 percent
widening of that deficit with imports rising faster than exports.
March sales of U.S. goods and services to other countries hit a
record $94.70 billion, growing 2.6 percent, with that figure
deemed good news for manufacturers.  What was not good news was
that all-time high in the U.S. trade deficit, rising to $45.96
billion in March against estimates of $42-43 billion, up from the
revised-higher $42.12 billion in February.  That was far less
than the 4.6 percent increase in imports to a record $140.66
billion.

Although more attention usually focuses on exports than imports
because the imports component of this number lags other measures
of domestic demand, the surging consumer goods component of the
imports growth did not go unnoticed.  That represented $2.6
billion of the increase, as Jim reported in the Market Monitor.
Also worrisome was another reason for the widening gap, the
increase in the country's petroleum deficit to $12.50 billion.

Against that background, Chicago Federal Reserve President
Michael Moskow spoke on CNBC Wednesday morning.  Responding to a
question about inflationary pressures, he termed those pressures
"transitory."  When asked about the downturn in manufacturing,
Moskow thought that downturn had been cyclical rather than
secular, although he added that the downturn had still been
painful, especially in the Midwest where manufacturing assumed
exaggerated importance.

Other market watchers might have quibbled with Moskow's market-
calming words, with one analyst quoted in a Marketwatch report
suggesting that any deficit was inflationary, whether from a
budget or a trade deficit.  Joel Naroff, an independent economic
consultant, was quoted in a separate Marketwatch report as
saying, "Dear Mr. Greenspan:  The whites of inflation's eyes are
now coming into view."

Roy Blumberg, analyst with Sterne, Agree & Leach, attributed the
early weakness to interest-rate concerns rather than those
related to the oil prices.  Blumberg commented that concerns
about interest rates, Iraq, and oil costs alternate from day to
day to pressure the markets.  He felt that the interest-rate
concerns factored highly in Wednesday's weakness, but were
overdone, and that it would take a two percent increase before
rates would dampen growth.  The effect is psychological, he
theorized, but many would argue that the markets instead are
discounting the effect of interest rates many months in the
future.

Ten-year bond yields had been dropping prior to the U.S. trade
deficit data, but steadied afterward and ended the day higher.
An auction of five-year notes showed foreign demand lower than it
had been for the last several auctions, sending bond prices lower
and yields higher.

Annotated Weekly Chart for Ten-Year Yields:



As Jim also reported in the Market Monitor Wednesday morning,
mortgage applications dropped to 742.2 from 780.0.  Homebuilders
have been reeling, with the DJUSHB, the Dow Jones US Home
Construction Index, depicting how the specter of higher interest
rates has affected the homebuilding industry.  While the SPX and
other indices hit support levels today, the DJUSHB was hitting
one of its own.

Annotated Weekly Chart of the DJUSHB:



As the DJUSHB's chart depicts, Wednesday's bounce was not
unalloyed good news, and won't be until the index moves above a
possible right-shoulder level near 628.  Until then, the index
remains in danger of rounding over into a right shoulder and then
confirming that H&S.  As the chart depicts, oscillators have
already broken through their own H&S formation, perhaps
predicting weakness ahead for this index and for stocks related
to the sector.  As always, price action will be the final guide,
while we let this oscillator action serve as a warning of what
could happen.

Even before the Barton-Biggs-inspired or SPX-inspired bounce,
hints had surfaced that a market bounce could be coming.  You've
read those hints on these pages, as writers warn of building
oversold pressure.  More specific evidence surfaced.  Early in
the trading day, I noted that the BIX, the S&P Banks Index, was
not following other indices to their tests of yesterday's lows.
Although trading minimally lower, it hovered near the top of the
previous day's range, finally breaking above Tuesday's high and
then the 200-dma.  The BIX shares some big-cap names with indices
such as the OEX, so that OEX bears were warned to watch the BIX's
behavior.  That bounce will soon bring the BIX up to a test of a
violated regression channel, however, with that test occurring at
about 334-355, and with the BIX closing at 332.50.

That bounce coupled with approaching resistance describes a
problem for many who might be examining charts after Wednesday's
close.  Many indices now head straight into presumably strong
resistance.  The SPX bounce moved it into the midpoint of the
range between the supporting 200-dma and the presumed resistance
from a broken support line at about 1112.  Two questions arise.
Will there be follow through on the late-day bounce?  Have
markets seen their lows?  Possibly, and I don't know.

Examining market breath for clues reveals that, despite the late-
day bounce, market breadth was mixed.  On the NYSE, advancing
issues beat declining issues by a moderate 17:16 ratio.  Up and
down volume was matched equally, but new lows trumped new highs
with new lows at 208 and new highs at 8.  On the Nasdaq,
advancing issues numbered fewer than declining ones, with the
adv/dec ratio at 14:17.  Down volume proved stronger, too, on
that exchange, at 1.7 times up volume.  New lows measured 100 and
new highs, 21.  That picture does nothing to clarify the forecast
for tomorrow or the next few days.

Neither does the behavior of the SOX, often a leading indicator
for the tech-related indices.  Although the SOX bounced strongly
with other indices, it did not manage a positive close.   Despite
the loss in the SOX, the Nasdaq closed higher, bouncing from near
1880, but it heads into resistance of its own and may be forming
a congestion zone between the 1880 support and the 200-dma.

Annotated Daily Chart of the Nasdaq:



The Dow's bounce sent it back above its 200-dma, but the bounce
stopped at nearest resistance, and the Dow will face resistance
again at 10,200.

Annotated Daily Chart of the Dow:



Finally, to add more fuel to the mix (pun intended), as was
mentioned in the Futures Monitor on the OIN site, the $40 price
for crude oil has served to stop every advance in crude oil
prices for more than thirty years.  Intraday crude futures
reached a high of $40.92, and closed at a 13-year high, at
$40.77, depicting crude oil prices as being at a key level.

Crude oil prices and ten-year bond yields have reached strong
resistance, zones from which they will either break out or roll
down.  Most indices bounced strongly, but remain below key
resistance, and the potential reversal signals require
confirmation from tomorrow's action.  The Dow, SPX, and COMPX all
have room to run before crashing into that next strong
resistance, allowing room for a day or several-day run higher
before they do so.  We won't know whether today's bounce was
anything more than an oversold or technical bounce, as some were
already labeling it this afternoon, until that follow through
results and then those overhead resistance levels are breached.

The Russell 2000 may provide the first peek at how that overhead
resistance will be handled, as it appears close to testing
important resistance.

Annotated Chart of the Russell 2000:



Market watchers would do well to watch crude prices, ten-year
yields, and the Russell as first indicators of market action
tomorrow. A downturn in crude prices and ten-year yields may
allow for an equity bounce to retest resistance and relieve
oversold pressure. Since the SPX's touch of the 200-dma proved so
important in today's action, that level should be watched, too.

After-hours trading saw the NDX pull back from gains made in the
late-day push.  In other after-hours news, Disney (DIS) traded
higher after its Q2 report.  Thursday's earnings reports include
tech bellwether Dell as well as BEA Systems.

Economic reports due Thursday include April's include PPI and
Core PPI, 4-week jobless claims for the week ending May 8,
April's retail sales and ex-auto retail sales, all to be released
at 8:30 EST. Although the market typically pays more attention to
the Core PPI, the prices paid component that excludes food and
energy, the inclusive PPI figure might draw some attention this
week, too, as concerns about crude oil prices have factored so
strongly in recent market declines.  Market expectations for PPI
range from a 0.3-0.5 percent gain, against March's 0.4% gain,
while estimates for Core PPI mostly center on a 0.2 percent
climb, up from March's 0.1 percent gain.   Estimates for the
initial claims number are at 325 thousand, with the previous
number at 315 thousand.

WATCH LIST
==================================================================

The PremierInvestor.net watch list is not designed to be read
as full fledged stock picks.  Rather we would prefer to offer
it as an extra tool in today's investor toolbox.  Think of it
as a radar screen with your own radar operator pointing out
interesting developments, technical patterns or potential plays
that you may or may not have seen on your own.  Due to time
constraints we do glance at the news but rarely do we have
time to fully read pertinent news stories, due background
research and other necessary screens that investors should do
before making a decision.  A common exercise is to read the
entry, glance at the sector and other stocks in that industry
and then compare what's happening in the stock to what's
happening in the broader market indices.  We hope you enjoy
the Watch List and that it proves to be a useful tool for your
own trading success.

STOCKS WORTH WATCHING
---------------------------------

Chico's FAS - CHS - close: 39.58 change: -0.08

WHAT TO WATCH: It seems everything is flirting with its 200-dma
lately and CHS is no different, as the stock is trying to find
support near $38, just over the 200-dma.  We're looking for one
more rebound with a failure in the $40-41 area to set up solid
bearish entries prior to the subsequent breakdown through the
200-dma and continuation down towards strong support at $32.




---

Kindred Healthcare - KIND - close: 48.35 change: +2.70

WHAT TO WATCH: On the surface yesterday's drop and today's
subsequent strong rebound might look like an opportunity for the
bulls.  But with the strength of resistance in the $49-51 area,
the 50-dma at $50.37 and a fresh PnF Sell signal with a downside
target of $34, odds favor the bears right now.  Target entries on
a rollover from resistance, using a tight stop at $52 and
targeting an initial drop to the $40 level.




---

VCA Antech Inc. - WOOF - close: 41.60 change: +0.93

WHAT TO WATCH: A bit extended on the long-term charts,
WOOF has been in that condition for many months now.
But it is the near-term price action that catches our
attention.  After the big drop this morning, the stock
came roaring back into the close, actually ending at a
new all time high on huge volume.  While it's an
aggressive play, we like targeting entries on a move
through today's high, looking for steady upside
continuation in the rising channel.  Target a rally to
the $47-48 area by mid-June.




---

CDW Corp. - CDWC - close: 63.29 change: -0.54

WHAT TO WATCH: After a serious breakdown at the end of
April, CDWC has been trying to build a new base above
the 200-dma for the past couple weeks.  The way the
stock has been bouncing off the 200-dma over the past
couple days, it looks like this is the place where we
can expect the rebound to materialize.  But we don't
want to try to play the upside.  There's major
resistance near $66.50, and with the 100-dma and 50-
dma converging on that level, we should expect a
rollover if price reaches that level.  Target entries
on that rejection at resistance and play for a drop
first to the 200-dma and then a break down to the $58
level, the site of the bullish support line.

  New Bearish Plays
  -----------------

Intersil Corp. - ISIL - close: 18.67 change: -0.89 stop: 20.50

Company Description:
Intersil Corporation is a global designer and manufacturer of
high-performance analog semiconductors and a supplier of power
management solutions for all computing platforms.  The company's
portfolio primarily addresses four markets: power management,
optical storage (CD and DVD recordable), flat-panel displays and
wireless networking.  ISIL brings added customer value in
wireless networking by providing complete silicon, software and
reference design solutions to new products that enhance the
computing experience. Products are organized into three product
groups: power management, Elantec and standard analog.

Why we like it:
Semiconductor stocks haven't exactly been a bastion of strength
in recent weeks, leading the overall Technology sector lower
since early April.  Shares of ISIL have been stubbornly holding
support near $19 for over a week, as the SOX has rebounded back
towards resistance.  When today's drop commenced in the SOX, that
was the straw that broke support on ISIL, with the stock slipping
under that key support level and never being able to reclaim it.
Today's breakdown simply confirms the picture that we've been
seeing on the PnF chart, as the stock has been on a PnF Sell
signal for months and the recent break below $20 solidified the
bearish view by breaking price under the bullish support line.
The price objective from the PnF chart is $17 and we can
certainly see support for that idea from the daily price chart,
with strong support coming in near $16.50 at the bottom of the
April 2003 gap.

With the breakdown under support having already occurred, we
don't need a trigger for this play.  Conservative traders can
look for rollover entries in the $19.00-19.50 area, while the
more aggressive approach will be to step into the play on a break
below today's $18.33 low.  While there's the potential for some
support to be found at the top of the afore-mentioned gap
($17.50), we're betting on more weakness than that and will set
our sights on a drop to the $16.50 level.  Initial stops should
be set at $20.50, just over the intraday highs from last week as
well as the level of the 20-dma ($20.58) by tomorrow.

  New Bullish Plays
  -----------------


Magal Security - MAGS - close: 15.04 change: +1.85 stop: 12.25

Company Description:
Magal Security Systems Ltd. develops, manufactures, markets and
sells complex computerized security systems, including a line of
perimeter security systems and a video motion-detection system
that automatically detect and locate intruders and identify the
nature of intrusions.  The company also offers MagNet, a security
management system that integrates the management, control and
display of various security systems into a single, real-time
database.  In addition, it provides video monitoring services.
Magal's systems are used in more than 70 countries to protect
aircraft, national borders and sensitive facilities, including
military bases, power plant installations, airports, postal
facilities, prisons and industrial locations, from terrorism,
theft and other security threats.

Why we like it:
Security-related stocks all lifted off in near-vertical fashion
in late March and early April, helped along by the mania for
shares of TASR.  Since peaking in the middle of April though,
this group has felt the pull of gravity, coming back into the
bases that were built before the irrational moonshot rally.  MAGS
catches our attention due to the fact that it seems to have found
support ABOVE the point where the dramatic rally began and looks
like it could be preparing for another bullish move.  Before we
continue though, it should be understood that this is a HIGH RISK
play -- just the fact that the stock advanced 14% today should
highlight the volatile nature of this stock.  Looking at the
actual chart pattern shows why we like the stock though.  The
initial drop off the April highs came to rest at $12.35, just low
enough to fill in the late March gap that kicked off the April
insanity.  The first bounce didn't go very far, but then MAGS
came down to bounce again from just above that low and today's
rally came on strong volume.

Another reason to classify this as a risky play is that the PnF
chart is still bearish, with a downside target of $5.  It will
take a trade at $17 to finally turn it bullish again, but by then
it will once again be too difficult to control risk.  Clearly
there's still substantial downside risk, but we think there are
enough bullish factors and potential reward to justify that risk.
One factor in our favor is the fresh bullish cross on the daily
Stochastics that completes our bullish divergence setup.  Ideal
entries would come on a slight pullback near the 10-dma ($14.02).
Of course, those traders that would prefer to wait for that PnF
Buy signal will want to wait for the move through $17 before
playing.  Note that when that Buy signal does print, it will
carry with it an initial bullish price objective of $25.50.
Initial resistance will come in near the 50-dma ($18.34), but
we'll use an official target at strong resistance at $20.  Due to
the large potential upside, we're also using a liberal initial
stop at $12.25, just under the low of May 3rd.
